Sony 2011 Xperia Phones Not to Get Jelly Bean Update

For Xperia users, here’s a bit of sad news. Sony has announced that Xperia Arc S and Mini Pro smartphones won’t get Android 4.1 Jelly Bean OS update.

That’s not all. The Japanese company has clarified that none of the Xperia phones released in 2011 is going to get the update.

Though the company had earlier said that all of its 2011 Xperia phones will be upgraded to Android 4.0 Ice Cream Sandwich (ICS), Sony announced that the phones won’t receive the next version of Google’s mobile operating system.

This means that owners of the Xperia Active, Neo V, Live with Walkman and Xperia Mini are also likely to miss out on Google’s latest version of Android.

Sony also said that it is reviewing which of its latest handsets are best for the Android 4.1 Jelly Bean update. It is likely that high-end Xperia S and Xperia Ion devices could get the update.
